Is all your jewellery sterling silver?
Yes, all Lily Charmed jewellery is 925 sterling silver, 18 carat gold plated sterling silver or solid 9 carat gold. All our silver charms are cast from recycled sterling silver too!
What is sterling silver?
Silver by itself is a very soft metal so around 7% of the material used in quality silver jewellery is made of other alloys, usually copper to give it strength and longevity. All our silver jewellery is stamped 925 which refers to the fact that at least 92.5% of the metal is pure silver.
Hallmarking – why do some items have a hallmark, and others do not?
By law all sterling silver items over 7.8 grams must be hallmarked. We hallmark all our silver that is over this weight with the Birmingham assay office. All our 9 carat gold is also Hallmarked by the assay office.
Do I have to pay for a gift box?
No. All our jewellery is beautifully presented in our premium gift box with a polishing cloth and finished with a hand-tied ribbon, all as standard.

Yes. Click on Charms in the menu. This will show you all our unique charm designs to add to an existing Lily Charmed necklace or bracelet
Can I buy a Necklace without a message on the card?
Yes, all our necklaces can be supplied with or without a message. However as there is no difference in price why not personalise your gift with your own message that we will print for you.
